A message from the superintendent

Dear New Haven Families,

The New Haven Public Schools have a diverse array of high-quality schools with positive environments and dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators. Our schools range from traditional neighborhood to magnet and charter schools, each with its own unique themes and programming. This enrollment guide is designed to provide our families with needed information and tools to explore school options for children. Please take the time to peruse it.

As you explore, please consider the interests of your children, special talents, variety of academic programs, extracurricular offerings, school hours, distance from home, and time on bus routes. Please be sure that you join us at the virtual School Choice Expo on January 29. Staff in the Office of School Choice and Enrollment, as well as administrators and school counselors will be available to guide and to explain the varied programs in their schools. There are also a number of helpful tools available to families at

School choice presents an important opportunity to help select the educational setting that best fits the interests of your children. Let us work collaboratively to help our students explore varied environments that will help prepare them for now and the future.
